What to Do When the AC Isn’t Working
The brutal summers in our area of the country make air conditioning necessary for safety and comfort. Some malfunctions may seem minor and you may wonder if the problem warrants a service call. Waiting for the system to completely break down risks extreme discomfort, so schedule your repair at the first sign of a decrease in performance.
It’s time to call an AC specialist when:
- The AC unit won’t turn on
- The system doesn’t respond to the thermostat settings
- Hot or warm air is coming from the vents
- Water pooling around the unit
- Strange noises
- The system is running but not cooling your property
- High humidity levels
If your air conditioner isn’t coming on or the house is warm even with the AC running, there are a few things you can check. Make sure the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped, change the filter, and check that the thermostat is set to cool. Turn it down a bit and see if the system kicks on. If you’ve done these things and still have a problem, leave your Houston AC repair to a qualified HVAC technician.

An air conditioning system can fail for a number of reasons. When the system isn’t very old or badly damaged, the repair can usually be completed quickly by replacing the damaged components. A quality repair requires accurately identifying the root cause of the problem. Since each manufacturer’s equipment has its own unique designs and specifications, a qualified professional HVAC technician should perform all inspections and AC repairs.
Some of the most common AC repair issues include:
- Refrigerant leaks
- Faulty compressors
- Frozen coils
- Blower motors
- Defective electrical components
- Damaged fan blades
- Clogged condensate drain
- Dirty filters
Lack of maintenance is a common reason for AC system malfunctions. Your air conditioner works hard to keep your property cool and comfortable. This causes wear on the system and routine maintenance can help reduce the frequency of breakdowns, improve performance, and extend equipment life. Regular annual maintenance is the best way to protect your investment and ensure indoor comfort season after season.
